Radon Gas Testing

Radon is an odorless, colorless radioactive gas that comes out of the soil around and under the home, and gets trapped inside. It can occur in homes with or without a basement, and age is not a factor. Radon is a dangerous gas that is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer after smoking
To complete the test, a radon testing machine is placed in the lowest level of the home and will be left in place for a full 48 hours. In order to get the most accurate results, all windows and doors must remain closed for 12 hours prior to the test as well as for the full testing period. To ensure that these guidelines are followed, we will place reminders in appropriate places throughout the home.
More information on Radon is found at the EPA website at www.epa.gov/radon

New Construction Inspection

New construction inspections are performed at the completion of a construction, but prior to your final walk through with the Builder’s Customer Service Representative or Superintendent. It is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the builder depending on the builder’s policy. The inspection should be scheduled at just a day or two before your final walk through with the builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your inspection. At the conclusion of the inspection a completed report will be distributed to your client within 24 hours

 

Pre-listing Inspection by “seller”

Listing inspections are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. A great many sales are cancelled due to the buyer’s shock at the “functional condition” of the home. It may look great, but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner’s knowledge. Having the home inspected prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue found in the inspection report. Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can’t make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home base upon that disclosure will often times produce a higher net sales price for the owner.

 

Pre-purchase Inspection by the “Buyer”

A Pre-Purchase home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used with a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The inspector will run the sinks and tub(s), run the shower(s), and flush the toilets. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Upon completion, an easy to read report will be distributed to your client within 24 hours.
